My battery went dead left a light on, I can't see the battery unless I take the wheel off is there any other way to tell if it is a top mounted battery or a side mounted one.

Is it the starter or something else

Through some research on the net, found steps to replace TCM/ECM. Reinstalled with a used unit with identical numbers. It said when you first turn key on and check engine light comes on that the unit is working good. followed all steps. Car runs pretty good but check engine light still stays on. Cleared with code reader and restarted. Light comes back on P0601 internal controller malfunction, also saying repair cost of $40. I'm lost here. Is the TCM/ECM good or is there something else to look at. Getting 12v and good ground.


the problem occurs sometimes

My car ran for 15-20 min then died a few times. Now it don't start I replaced the computer, distributor, and fuel pump. This is really frustrating what could it be?

The timing belt. Now before we took the old belt off the book told us to set the timing marks on the two cam gears to point towards eachother before we removed old belt so we did that and replaced the belt and put it all back together. The car runs great, accelerates good and rpms come down good. I noticed now while you sit parked for a minute or two whether your in gear or not the idle runs lower then normal. The car usually runs around 900 rpms at idle and now it's about 700 rpms. Why would it do that

A cracking sound come from the steering column like something broke or cracked and then my cars air bag light came on. What would that be and is it OK to drive without getting hit in the face by a 200mph air bag because it just decides to deploy.

gas tank is always full only drive for about 15-30 min

Car runs great, has brake issues. Drives smooth, slowing down around 30 mph and under the abs will kick on and takes away most of the braking. No abs light on in dash, doesn't seem like it kicks it full abs. Please help!
